CHEOPS STM #32 Code Of Conduct

We value the participation of everyone at this event and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees and staff and agree to the code of conduct upon registration and attendance.

This meeting will be a harassment-free environment for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, nationality, or religion. All communication and behaviour should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds.

We will not tolerate harassment of attendees in any form.

Harassment includes, but is not limited to:

  • Written or verbal comments which have the effect of excluding people on the basis of membership of any specific group, such as (but not limited to) gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion or nationality. This includes sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, or exclusionary jokes.
  • Comments made, either through speech or chat on any meeting-related online platform (including social media), that are exclusionary, derogatory, or threatening toward another participant or community.
  • Sexual language and imagery.
  • Violent threats or language directed against another person, including incitement to violence, suicide, or self-harm.
  • Deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following.
  • Harassing photography or recording.
  • Continuing to initiate interaction (including photography or recording) with someone after being asked to stop.
  • Sustained disruption of talks or other events.
  • Unwelcome sexual attention.
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behaviour.

All meeting participants are subject to the code of conduct. If an individual is made aware that they are contravening these guidelines or making others uncomfortable, they are expected to desist immediately. Failure to do so, or repeated breaches, will result in participants being asked to leave the event.

Thank you for helping make this a welcoming, respectful space for all.
